Photographs of Cardiff, 1969-1972
This was the area of Cardiff where I was brought up and went to school. These photographs were part of a series I made in the late 1960's, early 70's when the main employer - the steelworks - was closing, and the area being pulled apart and 're-developed'. These images formed part of a touring exhibition supported by the Arts Council of Wales.

I am slowly working on a series of still life photographs around the general theme of 'seeds'. Mostly the material for the photographs is found in my own garden at the various seasons of the year. I gather these and 'live' with them for a while as they take on an existence of their own outside of their natural environment. These are then arranged and photographed with a 10"x 8" camera, and direct contact prints made on either platinum coated material, or silver prints, which are then sulphide and selenium toned.
